* UglyGuyHotWife: It became a sitcom cliché, particularly after the TropeCodifier ''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'', and a popular target of mockery among both critics and audiences for either A) Giving unattractive men false hope (even though [[TruthInTelevision these pairings do sometimes happen in real life]]) or B) Promoting a DoubleStandard with regards to acceptable levels of attractiveness for leading actors and actresses[[note]]In other words, average or below-average looking male actors can still get leading roles if they're funny or talented enough, but an equally less-attractive actress would be lucky to get a recurring role, and are rarely considered for leads[[/note]]. Then came ''Series/MikeAndMolly'', a very notable aversion to the stereotype which one might think would have killed the trend. But unless the standard for female beauty in Hollywood goes down, (or the one for males goes up) this trope is not going anywhere anytime soon.

* UnrelatedBrothers: {{Kayfabe}} families were once very common in ProfessionalWrestling, but as of TheNewTens they are almost nonexistent. Thanks to the internet, it's very easy for fans to find out whether or not wrestlers are really related and wrestling has since become far more reality-based in response to this. Furthermore, there are so many second and third generation wrestlers these days that it's easier to just use real relatives. Even Wrestling/{{Edge}} and Wrestling/{{Christian}}, who were initially portrayed as brothers, were later {{retcon}}ned into being lifelong best friends (which they are in real life). Despite this there are still a few [[GrandfatherClause grandfathered]] cases hanging around and it is still sometimes used, such as [[Wrestling/AmericanAlpha Jason Jordan]] being the Kayfabe son of Wrestling/KurtAngle or Wrestling/{{EC3}} as the Kayfabe nephew of Wrestling/{{TNA}} president Dixie Carter. Wrestling/LuchaUnderground also has at least two cases (Dario and Matanza Cueto, Marty Martinez and Mariposa).

* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Despite numerous studies proving that penis size alone has little to do with pleasing (most) women sexually, the trope is still alive and kicking (especially in porn, where it's practically omnipresent) and will be as long as MostWritersAreMale.

* BlackGuyDiesFirst: Has been mocked and parodied over the years but ''still'' tends to pop up in works unironically (if only for the arbitrary reason that (A) there's only one Black character, (B) they aren't the main character and (C) ''somebody'' has to die for there to be a FinalGirl).

* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Pretty much in any comedy that started after 1992 has this is happening to husbands by their wife. There has been a growing backlash to this DoubleStandard in TheNewTens [[note]]the father getting abused or pushed around is "okay", but the mother getting treated like that would create accusations of misogynistic undertones[[/note]] and more modern shows have been subverting, averting or deconstructing it in an attempt to discredit it, but this trope is still often played straight and is still a widely defended belief in RealLife, even among law enforcement.
